These are all iPhone photographs made along the backroads of Alabama and Georgia during the spring of 2013. Some are old homes that will soon pass back to the earth, others currently occupied, tenants unknown. All were processed with Snapseed, some further processed using Instagram.
A great idea to capture these, with black & white eerily appropriate..
Dust to dust.
These are wonderful photos. Very sensitive and strong. And they evoke a deep sense of connection to a past that I’ve never experienced. I can almost hear the conversations that must have taken place in those houses. I imagine the 1930’s and the Great Depression and the struggles folks dealt with. Thanks for posting them.
thanks for the comments joann!
Wonderful photos Russ. The 3rd photo from the top is incredible. Look forward to your photos every time!
Thanks so much Kris!
These are beautiful photos, you must have a very artistic eye. It’s really amazing to see how different things can be from the backroads to the main roads. Someone before me mentioned the eerie quality of these photos, I definitely agree that it’s very fitting and adds intrigue. I’m new to your blog, but I think I will be keeping up with it as often as I can.
Appreciate the kind words and please do stop by often, and tell your friends…
Beautiful shots! It’s amazing what the iphone can produces with a great eye behind the camera.
Thanks Jessica. I’ve just finished travels in southern Colorado, so more to come. I think even short road trips with this beauty may be able to keep your wanderlust satisfied…
I sure hope so, Russ! Thanks for reading. Can’t wait for your pictures to show me all the places I need to visit in CO.
